    In a press conference held in Goa on Friday, 20 September 2019 the Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman announced a slew of measures in order to reduce the prevailing taxation rates in the country. The FM said that the new corporate tax rate will be 22% without exemptions. The effective corporate tax rate after surcharge will stand at 25.17%. To further attract investment in manufacturing, local companies incorporated after October 2019 will pay tax at 15%, the FM added.

    FM also announced that effective tax for new companies shall be 17.01%, including cess and surcharge. Companies enjoying tax holidays would be able to avail concessional rates post the exemption period.

    FM further added that the Government will give MAT relief for those opting to continue paying surcharge and cess at 22%. MAT has been reduced to 15% from 18.5% for companies who continue to avail exemptions and incentives.

    The government has also decided to not levy enhanced surcharge introduced in Budget on capital gain arising from sale of equity shares in a company liable for securities transaction tax (STT). To stabilise flow of funds into the capital market, enhanced surcharge under Finance (No.2) Act, 2019 will not apply on capital gains arising on sale of equity share in a company or a unit of an equity oriented fund or a unit of a business trust liable for STT. Higher surcharge will also not apply on capital gains on sale of security including derivatives held by foreign portfolio investors (FPIs). Listed companies that have announced buyback before 5 July 2019, tax on buyback of shares will not be charged.

    Total revenue foregone for the reduction of taxes and other reliefs is estimated to be at Rs 1.45 lakh crore per year.

    On the global front, a cut in the reserve requirement ratio for banks by the People's Bank of China (PBOC) went into effect on Monday. The PBOC said in early September that its reserve requirement ratio would be cut by 50 basis points and it would further reduce that ratio by 100 basis points for some qualified banks.

    The Fed announced it would cut the benchmark federal funds rate a quarter percentage point to a range of 1.75% to 2% on Wednesday, but said in an accompanying statement that sustained expansion of economic activity, strong labor market conditions, and inflation near the committee's symmetric 2% objective are the most likely outcomes. The Fed, however, appeared divided on further action for the year.

    The Fed also released a survey of Fed Board members and regional Fed bank presidents, which showed that the median respondent believes the Fed funds rate would be at present levels through the end of 2020.
